Tides fall to Irish visitors at Windsor

A great evening of intense and exciting Junior Tide rugby swept through Windsor Park Monday night

A great evening of intense and exciting Junior Tide rugby swept through Windsor Park Monday night.

The Irish schoolboys from Down High School in Northern Ireland were as tough as expected, and capitalized on the errors they forced, winning both exhibition games.

Both Tide coaches, Spencer Robinson (U16) and Matt Mortenson (U18), were delighted with the effort their players put in and agreed the fixtures were ideal preparation for the upcoming Provincial Regional Competition this weekend at the University of British Columbia.

The Tide Junior Program represents athletes from the lower Island selected to compete in U18, U16 and U15 Provincial Regional Championships. The U15 team competed June 28 and 29, with the U16 and U18 competition July 3 to 5 at UBC.
